I can’t believe October is over – that means it’s finally acceptable to get excited for Christmas!
Today, I’m bringing you my November TBR, some of these books just need to be finished off – but most of them are things I’m really excited to get my teeth into. Luckily, next week I don’t have any uni classes, so I’m hoping to catch up on my work and (more importantly) my reading. I’m trying not to be overly optimistic,so I’ve chosen 4 books this month, but I really want to read 5 or 6 if I can manage it.
Before we go any further, a little warning, I generally go into a book pretty blind, so I don’t really know the details of any of these novels. I’ve given you as much information as I know, but if you’d like a full summary, click the link and Goodreads can help you out!
- The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath. I’ve been listening to this audiobook on the bus for the past 2 weeks and I’m really wanting to get it finished. This modern classic tells the story of Esther and her dissension into madness, it’s sure as heck not light reading, but I’m about halfway through and I’m really enjoying it so far.
- Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov. Again, not exactly light reading, but it’s a book that has come highly recommended and I’d really love to add to my Read shelf. This novel tells the story of a man who falls in love with a 12-year-old girl (I believe), I don’t know much more than that, but I’ll write a full review once I’m finished.
- The Sun Is Also A Star by Nicola Yoon. Everything Everything is one of my favourite reads of this year (and quite possibly ever) so you can imagine how excited I am for this to be released tomorrow. I don’t even know what it’s about! I just know I’m going to love it!
- Girl at War by Sara Novic. Again, I’m not sure of the details of this book, but it was the book of the month for October over on sunbeamsjess‘ YouTube channel and I just never got around to it – I’m going to hold off watching the video until I’ve caught up!
